Norwegian 4H Teens to Visit Kansas

Submitted by Mary Kay Munson

Six or more members of Norway 4H want to visit Kansas 4-H’ers. Three families have already agreed to host a teen or chaperone June 26-July 19. Families from anywhere in Kansas can help meet our commitment to host 6 or more. They just do what the family members are doing. No extra travel or activities are required. They can be part of wheat harvest, 4th of July, and preparing projects for your fair. It’s a great time to show our Kansas summer! It will be new and fun for them. Families host a teen within 2 years of a host sibling of the same gender.
